I found a picture in my grandfather's stuff (must be 100+ years old), and it was taken in the "Photographisches Atelier, Rotes Kaufhaus" in Stettin.
I found something online, about another random picture:Germany
Vignetted portrait of young woman wearing brooch, standing by chair. Jewelry.
Rotes Kaufhaus, Photographische Abteilunghttp://www.libraries.psu.edu/digital/speccoll...
Now I have no other info, really ... but I am curious. Maybe they were just passing through the area. I don't know if they immigrated from Stettin to the USA.
1) Would people still say "Photographisches Atelier" today?
2) How "German" was/is Stettin. The link above lists it as being in Germany.
3) Are there still German enclaves in Stettin? Can you get by there just knowing German (and not Polish)?
4) Does the "Rotes Kaufhaus" still stand "in der Breiten Strasse 31"? (SCNR -- it's the address on the picture I found.)
I was hoping to hear from people in former East Germany, or people who have experience with that region of Poland, but would be happy about any comments/discussion.
